  • Insert coins slowly, taking note of the expiry time, as change is not given
  • Ensure tickets are face up and clearly visible on the dashboard inside your vehicle

After extensive research and community consultation outlined below, council adopted the Parking Strategy 2012-2016 (PDF, 1.8MB) establishing the direction parking management will take in the coming years.

Implementation plans

The Parking Strategy 2012-2016 contains 28 actions which address the many issues identified throughout the strategic planning process. Download the Parking Strategy Implementation Plan (PDF, 158KB).

Parking study

Between April and August 2012, the City of Subiaco undertook a city-wide parking study, led by technical consulting firm Arup. The study aimed to gather information to create an improved and sustainable approach to parking management in the city, addressing topics such as parking supply, demand and management. During this time, the city sought feedback from residents, businesses, employees and visitors.

Arup research report

This comprehensive report brings together best practice and industry research along with the community feedback captured through surveys, workshops and online collaborative mapping. The Arup report identifies five key aspects that require further review, including time controls and costs, enforcement, resident permit schemes, matching supply with demand, and traffic safety.

The recommendations contained within Arup's report were used to guide the city's parking strategy development and may not be included in the final parking strategy.

Collaborative mapping

The first stage of the project involved getting community feedback on parking in the city. Although collaborative mapping has now closed, comments can still be viewed by hovering your mouse over the blue parking icons on the map.
